I was asked to serve on a discussion panel regarding ableism. This was for the U of M DRS staff (and other U of M staff) who are participating in the Diversity Ambassador's Program. We discussed my experiences (and other students'/ staff experiences). I found it very enlightening to hear about other panel members' experiences with their disability and any experiences of ableism (discrimination in favor of able-bodied people). I was very happy to help the DRS office at U of M and I look forward to any future opportunities to help.
Sherri is absolutely a delight to work with and she really knows her stuff. I enjoy every volunteer opportunity with her. We placed plants that had outgrown their smaller pots into larger plants, watered them and prepared them for sale.
Staff was professional and easy to work with. The event was well organized. While it was cold and rainy, this group was definitely one I could see myself working with again.
Wonderful and insightful. I found Sherry to be supportive and informative. I will definitely be back.
